Chaat on a Stick

BM # 54   Week 4   Day 3

I love hosting parties and enjoy cooking for my guests. I like my menus to be elaborate and prefer to cook something new for these occasions. Well the quest for a new dish is something that all food bloggers have, right? On one of my recent evening tea parties , I made these Chaat BItes and they were appreciated by all. I served the Chaat on wooden skewers so it became easy for the guests to indulge in.You could use skewers or  toothpicks .

The bites on a stick look great and are very convenient for the guests too.

Chaat on a Stick.
2-3 potatoes
1 tomato
2 tsp Chaat masala
2 tbsp tamarind chutney
Salt to taste
Lemon juice

Wash and peel the potatoes.
Cut into cubes.
Alternatively you could use baby potatoes.
Sprinkle salt and mix well, keeping them aside for 5-7 minutes.We want the salt to seep in.
Deep fry these potatoes, till well cooked and crisp.
Remove on a kitchen napkin.
Chop the tomato into quarters, remove the pulp and dice them.
Put the potatoes and tomatoes into a bowl.
Add rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Check and adjust flavors according to taste .

To serve
Take a wooden skewer.
Thread in a tomato piece , two potato pieces or thread them the way you like.


I normally make this Chaat with a black spice powder called Kaala Chaat masala, and it's flavor is so good that I do not like to add chilly to it , how ever if you like your chaats spicy then prefer to use yellow chilly powder which tastes best in chaats. Red chilly powder could be used if yellow is not available.

The Kaala Chaat masala is a Delhi speciality and I am not sure if it is available else where, you could use MDH brand chunky Chaat Masala. In that case you might have to adjust the quantity of the spice. This spice is stronger than the black masala.
